Built in 1972, the Big Buddha has since become a spiritual center among Samui residents. The Big Buddha Temple is in fact located on the small island of Koh Faan but thankfully the locals later collectively built a causeway connecting both islands that are 300 meters apart, making a visit convenient for everyone.
